30 September 2014
The road blockades and demonstrations in Central, Admiralty, Wan Chai, etc. have seriously affected traffic as well as economic, school activities and emergency services causing much inconvenience to people’s livelihood. The day-to-day operations in some departments have also been affected. It is a very trying time for all of us, especially for colleagues in the Police, the Fire Services Department and other departments who are most involved at this stage. Despite facing such a difficult situation, colleagues have continued to make strenuous efforts to maintain the stability of Hong Kong and sustain the provision of quality service to the public. I am very confident that we can continue to count on all of you to serve the community with commitment, professionalism and team spirit.
